tricksta_p (1496) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JAN 1, 2015
Aroma of tart fruit, sour apple, funky yeast, Sauternes notes, oak, earthy notes, soft vanilla. Flavour is moderate sweet and moderate tart with a light bitter finish. Very nice, just like the other BA version of ★.

375 ml bottle, itís been in the back of my fridge for probably a year and a half at least, so I have no idea how old this bottle really is. Served in a Prairie Teku, the beer pours a mostly clear reddish/copper color with a half inch off-white head. Head retention is decent, and there isnít much lacing. Aroma is sweet and fruity, it smells like vanilla, oak, caramel, grapes, and some honey. Taste is similar to the aroma, but thereís also some stone fruit, earthiness and grainy malt noticeable. Mouthfeel/body is medium, itís a bit coating with low/moderate carbonation. Iím sure this brew has changed a lot from compared to when it was fresh, but at this point itís still good. Not really funky, to me itís more sweet tasting. If Mikkeller ever decides to make another batch of this, Iíll make a point to try it fresher.

more hops come through with the funk of this one, and i liked it the best, probably. great interplay between barrel and beer.

Cloudy more amber than orange and a sloof of white head. Nice bright grapefruit nose, soft vanilla sweetness. Carbonation is nice and soapy fizz, finishes nice and juicy sweet.

ansalon (1676) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - AUG 29, 2014
Pours murky caramel with a medium frothy tan head. Aromas of sour apple, apricot, sweet wine, raisins, cinnamon. Somewhat like cold apple pie marinated in sweet wine actually. Taste is apple, apricot, raisins, cinnamon, sweet wine, spices. Mouthfeel is somewhat smooth and luxurious with a nice crispiness to it as well. Not bad at all.

@ Basunen: ganska trevlig syrlig doft. Tyvärr lever inte smaken riktigt upp. Ganska lätt, smått syrlig men annars inget. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!
